I’m so, so excited to share with you my first in a series of regular guest interviews with lovely ladies and gents who inspire me on a daily basis. They live from their heart, they move through fear graciously and live healthy, happy, abundant and beautiful lives.
I can’t think of anyone better to start this series than the lovely Jen from Wild Sister and the inspirational Wild Sisterhood.community. One look at Jen’s amazing website, and you know immediately what she stands for- outrageous creativity, sisterhood, solidarity, vibrant colour and dreaming wildly.
This is what I love about Jen. Her monthly online magazine, Wild Sister, is packed full of uplifting spiritual, real-world advice to help you live beyond your wildest dreams. If you’re looking at kick-starting you CFS healing journey, trust me, learning from Jen and Wild Sister is definitely the way to go! The first time I sat down with a copy on my iPad, I think I got through 4 cups of herbal tea- I couldn’t stop reading and thinking about what these words meant for me.
Please visit Jen’s amazing website and follow her on social media (links are underneath the interview below). The latest edition of Wild Sister is on the Law of Attraction. Make sure you’ve got a good bit of time to read and enjoy it- lots of ‘a-ha’ moment for me! You can also download a free Wild Sister Sampler from the website- it’s beautiful!
Most of all, thank you so much to beautiful Jen for letting me interview her- I know her words will resonate with you just as much as this did with me.
Enjoy my darlings!
Love and wild dreaming,
1. Describe yourself in three words.
Colourful. Inspired. Free.
2. What was the inspiration behind ‘Wild Sister’ magazine?
I’ve always been an advocate for positivity, and I grew tired of media that always made women feel bad about who they are.
I wanted to create something that would inspire women and help them to feel beautiful, loved, worthy and empowered.
Basically, I wanted to read a magazine that made me feel good, so I made one.
3. What would you say to anyone who hasn’t read ‘Wild Sister’ magazine?
What are you waiting for?! Haha!
In all seriousness, I know it might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but if you’re a woman who craves inspiration, empowerment and a sisterhood of women just like you, Wild Sister is for you.
4. What does sisterhood mean to you?
Connection, as in souls connecting deeply with one another. It’s femininity + strength + vulnerability + raw truth. It’s knowing you can be completely yourself with your soul sisters, without the fear of judgement.
5. What are your non-negotiables when it comes to your life?
Positivity. Choosing happiness. Love. Freedom. And oh-so-much-laughter.
6. How has fear appeared in your life and what do you do when it does?
Fear has appeared in my life a lot. I used to let it control every part of my life, if I was afraid of it, I wouldn’t do it. I thought I needed to wait until the fear went away first.
Now, I still feel fear. But instead of letting it block my path like a brick wall, I walk right through it. I don’t try to resist it or get rid of it, I move forward with it. And the more I keep doing that, the less control fear has over my life.
7. What do you do or say to yourself if you’re having an ‘off’ day?
I look for the lesson.
No matter what it is, whether mulling over a mistake I made or obsessing over something that annoys me, I get out of my head and into the moment.
Then I reframe it and look for ways I can learn from that experience. I always find a lesson in off days, even if all it is is to be more patient with myself. I’m always learning.
Most importantly, I always remind myself that I can do better tomorrow. I never beat myself up, I remember that I’m always doing the best I can with what I have at the time. That’s enough.
8. What projects are you working on at the moment?
I’ve got a few on my to-do list but the first one is an e-course that will guide women through the process of creating their own e-magazine in 30 days. I’m super excited about it!
9. Do you have any other words of support and encouragement to share with my readers?
Remember to always smile at yourself in the mirror
Follow Jen and dream your big life!
